From the past few decades, Agriculture is playing an indispensable role in the survival of humans. In agriculture, the most cultivated crops are potato and sweet potato. According to the statistics of FAO organization, the India ranks 3 for their immense production in tomato (Kaur and Bhatia, 2019). Across the world, the tomato crop is enormously popular for their growth as in every kitchen people use tomatoes massively. However, the growth is high there is a huge loss to the farmers due to an increase in massive Tomato Leaf Diseases. So, to detect leaf diseases the majorly used techniques in this paper are Deep Learning techniques where the image data can be trained and modelled perfectly using various Neural Network models. By this research study, every individual can gain knowledge over different methodologies involved in Deep Learning, to encounter those methodologies, this research had experimented 4 models which are Le Net, Dense Net-121, Mobile Net and CNN. Once after building the model to verify the predicted results and this research consists of different evaluation metrics such as Confusion Matrix, Accuracy, Precision, MSE, Recall and F1- Score. To develop, all these models the coding implementation was done in python using Anaconda Navigator and Google Collab software’s. Finally, all the 4 models have gained very good accuracy which is around 85-95%. Out of all the models, Dense-Net model had gained the best accuracy compared to all the models with 97%. All the other models' Le Net, Mobile Net and CNN have gained 86%, 88% and 88% respectively with 50 Epochs. This research had also verified by using 25 and 100 Epochs as well, but Dense Net have given the best results.
